3DS Overview Video and Menu

After all these updates, I was afraid there would be no news for me to cover, but, among the torrent of 3DS news, I’ve discovered something interesting:

A video covering the major aspects and features of the handheld. Including the new home menu, shown above.

The movie shows the charging cradle, examples of Tag Mode used in a couple of games, and the impressive Mii creator. The thing that has me most intrigued is the Menu.

Pressing the ”Home” button during gameplay will temporarily freeze the action, and return you to the start-up screen. From the menu, you can check Tag Mode, a message board of sorts, settings, and a few other options not yet confirmed. This, to me, is very reminiscent of infrastructures found on both the X-Box 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. Pressing the ”Home” button a second time will return you to your game, as you were.

Other video’s are included on the page, in the white boxes right under the 3DS logo, worthy of a watch.
